HONG KONG, Sept. 30, 2011-- Shangri-La Asia Limited announces today that it will open a Shangri-La hotel in 2015 in Jinan, capital of Shandong Province in eastern China.

Within 45-minute drive from the international airport, the hotel is also close to the city's key tourist attractions, including Baotu Spring, Daming Lake and Thousand Buddha Mountain.
Shangri-La has named Hong Kong-based Wong Tung International Limited as architect, and Hirsch Bedner Associates will undertake the interior design for guestrooms and the public area. The hotel's 400 guestrooms will range in sizes from 45 square metres for a standard room to 225 square metres for a suite.
A Horizon Club, Shangri-La's exclusive retreat for discerning travellers, will be available to offer a host of special amenities and privileges, including a 360-square-metre lounge for daily breakfast and cocktails, meeting rooms, and express check-in and check-out services.
The hotel will offer several restaurants and bars, including an all-day restaurant, speciality restaurant, Chinese restaurant, lobby lounge, bar and wine retail shop. Meeting and banqueting facilities will include a 1,900-square-metre Grand Ballroom, several function rooms, a Government VIP Room and a Bridal Room.
